Cycle speed dating comes to Hackney

Boris bike novices and single speed pros are invited to a special cycling speed dating night, to prove that although cycling on your own is a great way to get around and explore London, but cycling together is even better.

The unusual Cycle Speed Dating event at bicycle Café and workshop Look Mum No Hands will see single cycle-minded Londoners date at least 15 people during one evening during short three minute dates.

Cyclists will receive an email after the event with their ‘matches’.

Straight men and women can participate on Tuesday February 11 at 7pm, and gay men can take part on Wednesday February 12.

Tickets for the event at the Mare Street cafe cost £15, for more information see
